Abstract
Stochastic Shortest Path problems (SSPs), a sub­
class of Markov Decision Problems (MDPs), can
be efficiently dealt with using Real­Time Dynamic
Programming (RTDP). Yet, MDP models are often
uncertain (obtained through statistics or guessing).
The usual approach is robust planning: searching
for the best policy under the worst model. This
paper shows how RTDP can be made robust in
the common case where transition probabilities are
known to lie in a given interval.
1 Introduction
In decision­theoretic planning, Markov Decision Problems
[Bertsekas and Tsitsiklis, 1996] are of major interest when
a probabilistic model of the domain is available. A number of
